THE ORLANDO MASSACRE

Fifty dead and more than fifty wounded. That's the (recent) tally of the toll in the largest mass shooting in American history. 

And, like clockwork the lamestream left-wing media are yapping like morons about "assault weapons" being the cause and how "banning" them would have prevented the carnage. The "fact" that the attacker used an "AR-15" is being mentioned at every turn. The fact that the shooter was a lone wolf Islamic radical jihadi is largely ignored. The big deal is about using this massacre to justify a "ban" on "assault weapons". 

What is an "assault weapon"?

An assault weapon is a rifle capable of fully automatic fire OR semiautomatic fire, of intermediate caliber; used for a phase of battle called the "assault". The first true assault rifle was the German Sturmgewehr  (Storm Rifle) 43; which had it been available to more German soldiers on D-Day may have turned the battle in Germany's favor. AN AR 15 IS FUCKING NOT AN "ASSAULT RIFLE" YOU MORONS!

But let's suppose the Orlando killer had used a fully automatic M-16 (the military version of the AR-15). He would have been able to put 10 rounds (that's bullets for all you morons who don't know a "clip" from a "magazine") down range per second. That's 600 .223 caliber projectiles per minute. Keep that in mind while we tell you a little story.

Last year, some nut drove into the Washington Navy Yard and started killing people. Before the bodies were cold, the media were all over how the killer had used an AR-15 rifle. 

But as they got reports that the killer had used a Remington 870 pump-action SHOTGUN, the newsies began reporting that he had used an "AR-15 shotgun". Anything to make the phrase "AR-15" stay in play, we posit.

Let us tell you a thing or two about shotguns. And we speak from experience, having been trained to use them by the United States Air Force Security Police.

A standard deer hunting (or military) load for a 12 gauge Remington 870 is nine pellets of 00 ("double-aught") buckshot, a .32 caliber projectile. It is very easy to fire two rounds containing 9 .32 caliber projectiles each from an 870 in one second. That's 18 projectiles per second from the shotgun, or 1,080 per minute, vs 600 from a FULLY AUTOMATIC M-16!!

And so we see that a commonly available hunting weapon is more deadly in crowds at short ranges than a fully automatic true military assault rifle. Elmer Fudd's weapon of choice would have caused more havoc in Orlando than if the nutbar who committed that act had used a fully automatic M-16.

But never mind that the killer was an Islamic radical who (by the bye) was also a licensed armed security guy (perhaps with a special police commission) and thus STILL would have been able to access guns the rest of us wouldn't be able to own - let alone bear - if the Left's anti 2nd Amendment agenda were fully implemented.

And never mind that the killer attacked yet another "soft target" where firearms were verboten. 

Never mind that Homeland Security had several indications that the killer was a radical Islamic nut case months before the shooting. 

We have said this before, but it bears repeating:

THE PROBLEM IS NOT FIREARMS. THE PROBLEM IS THE CULTURE!!!

NBC STANDS FOR "No Believable Content" PART III

We have previously remarked at how nakedly NBC tends to doctor tape recordings and twist facts into pretzels. The latest example of this comes from Katie Couric, the lady reporter who once had a TV camera shoved up her ass so we could get a good view of her colon (this actually happened). 

Couric was interviewing members of the Virginia Citizens' Defense League in an allegedly "balanced" report on "gun violence". Right in the middle of the interview she asked the VCDL members how they would keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists. The viewer saw the VCDL panel giving blank looks and speechless, as if they had been caught flatfooted without a good answer.

Well, folks; as it turns out they gave several very good answers. But Katie Colon - oops, Couric - replaced those answers with a clip shot of the panel sitting around waiting for the interview to begin. 

Katie sure knows how to show her ass. 

NBC. No Believable Content. Believe it.

ON THE EVE OF MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, OBAMA APOLOGIZES FOR THE UNITED STATES WINNING WORLD WAR II

Before the lefties who read this blog start sending in 20 paragraph spit-flying comments (which will be perused and deleted by me without ever seeing print), I want to make this clear: I know Obama put out a formal (and scripted) Memorial Day statement. It was boiler plate, and he didn't mean a damned word of it. 

How the Current Resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue really feels was betrayed by his visit to Hiroshima, Japan, where he expressed regret that the United States had exploded an atomic bomb over that city in 1945. 

"Death fell from the sky" Obama intoned. REALLY? REALLY, YOU PIECE OF GARBAGE? WHAT THE HELL FELL OUT OF THE SKY OVER HONOLULU ON DECEMBER 7TH 1941?? POSIES? 

Are you aware that every Purple Heart given out in every war from Korea through Vietnam up to the present day was manufactured in 1945 in anticipation of all the combat wounded we would suffer if we invaded the Japanese home islands? 

Are you aware that the Japanese had been told that every civilian should make least a bamboo spear? To ready themselves for suicide attacks? Bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki with nukes was the most merciful thing we could have done TO BOTH SIDES. 

We already have enough dead to remember this Memorial day without the Current Resident expressing his regret that we used a nuclear weapon to try and ensure we didn't have MORE guys who, as a member of my old regiment (24th Security Police, Panama) expressed it: "Didn't make the barbecue" on this Memorial Day. 

If one of you readers has a loved one or friend who "didn't make the barbecue", may God bless and keep you. He or she died so we could enjoy our open, free society and all the blessings of America.  
As it has been said: 

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

FOREIGNERS, FRUITCAKES AND FELONS: KEY TO THE DEMOCRAT "NEW VIRGINIA MAJORITY"

There is a movement in the Commonwealth of Virginia called "New Virginia Majority", meaning of course a hoped-for new DEMOCRAT majority. The first phase of this movement was to infest Northern Virginia with liberal-schmiberal fruitcakes, the more Government-dependent as possible.

Next, illegal aliens were brought into NoVa to increase the census count, to be  made as government dependent as possible, and to eventually be made citizens who would vote for their benefactors. 

However, this second phase has stalled because of the objections of those residents of Virginia who don't want a bunch of criminal freeloaders eating up the treasury. 

This was a major glitch, since there won't be enough new voters in November to tilt the vote to whoever the Democrat candidate is. So our carpetbagger governer has decided to just skip formalities - formalities required by LAW - and restore voting "rights" to all felons in the Commonwealth. The Republican controlled legislature is of course protesting this naked end-run around the Constitution of Virginia and the Legislature. 

Of course the Democrats are saying that the Republicans are trying to keep people out of the voting booth, while the Democrats are "Only trying to see that people who have paid their debt to Society are not denied their "Constitutional rights". 

To this we say:

OKAY YOU DEMOCRAT BLOWHOLES. HOW ABOUT RESTORING THE ENUMERATED - IN - THE - BILL-OF-RIGHTS "RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS??

WELL??

WELL??

The story opens on July 20 1994. The stepson, Peter Louis Gavin, is now a detective working Robbery out of the Georgetown precinct. Gavin responds to a robbery alarm, and when he arrives he discovers it has turned into a robbery-homicide. 

Waterman responds with his partner Kurt Williams, and they among other things recover the gun ditched by the fleeing robbers. 

When ballistics are run, the gun turns out to be the one which killed O'Bannon 32 years before; and the game is on. 

The book is available exclusively on Kindle. God bless our peace officers.

UBER

I have been asked many times how I as a taxicab operator feel about the "UBER" "Ride-Share" service and other similar operations. 

Well, to me, personally, I don't really care. I speak perfect English and rarely need to refer to a MAP, let alone GPS devices. That puts me as a premium driver. 

Besides, I HATE BEING PAID WITH PLASTIC BY PEOPLE I PICK UP OFF THE STREET. The more boneheads who use plastic go UBER, the better I like it. 

The fact is, UBER was born from hunger. They also go through drivers like a wino goes through Thunderbird. It takes a special kind of person to pick up strangers and take them  anywhere. UBER drivers might like it at first, but then the reality of getting your private ride beat to hell on the dents and potholes on the streets sets in, along with having to go to "severe service" maintenance.  AND if somebody bitches about an UBER driver three times, the driver is GONE. No hearing, no conference, no nothing. Every three to five months UBER puts out a new barrage of ads saying how you can make lots of money driving with UBER.

Once they get rid of Obamacare and people can get 40 hour a week jobs again, UBER will be sunk. Plus, they've wound up with some pretty damn crazy drivers. 

So I'm not worried about the Big Bad U.
